Things That Irk Me About Thunders
Okay, I’m going to try to make this brief. I’ve been lurking around thunders for nearly 9 months now and I just want to post a few observations that I have no doubt, many of us have already noticed ourselves. I’m not here to kill anyone’s motivation, but I only hope to get others thoughts, opinions, rebuttals, ..
1) Why do nearly all sets of before/after pictures posted in the progress/pics section seem questionable. Don’t misinterpret, there are definitely people there who have made gains, but the majority of the pictures (even those of some gainers) seem to be inconsistently measured. Many have a person measuring at what clearly looks like subpar EQ (not a faulty starting point), but then remeasuring again in a different way that is obviously advantageous to their size. Some are measured NBPEL and then BPEL, some unshaved (so we can’t determine the starting point) then shaved, one measurement, a guy is shown from the side normal before, but then shown from the side again, but he is wearing a rubber cock ring to trap in blood. And I’ve worn a cock ring before and know it can give you an additional .25 to .5 inches in length and additional girth.
2) Why aren’t there more before/after pictures. Based on the database analysis thread I’ve seen posted by several people, there have literally been 100s of people with legitimate gains (0.5” or more). So out of the 100s, maybe even 1000s of gainers around here, only a handful of these people have posted decent before/after pictures.
3) Why do people always seem to start progress threads after they’ve gained the majority of their purported size. I’ve seen so many threads where guys are like I started at 6.25”, but now I’m back starting at 7.5” and just want to see what I can get. Am I the only one who feels like that seems very questionable. I understand that people have no reason to lie (I think) but it would help many of us beginners if more people would post before/after pictures. Look at bodybuilding.com, almost everyone there posts a before/after picture. Why are people here so reluctant to do so. I guarantee if more people did PE’s credibility would skyrocket. I myself have only gained 1/4” in length in a over 3 months, but don’t think those are legitimate enough to post yet, I’m waiting for greater gains. But, if they come, I guarantee I will post consistently measured before/after pictures.
4) Why are people so offended when you question the credibility of PE. It really “grinds my gears” when people get on their high horse about PE as if they’ve proved some doctoral thesis about the validity of PE. PE is barely legitimate enough to call itself a quasi-science, since most of the greatest gainers in the community don’t even have pictures (BIB, DLD, .) charting their progression. Why the hell would anyone take their word as gospel? I’m not a religious person, so faith-based credibility doesn’t hold much weight with me. Why can’t people just accept that at the end of the day we’re all here hoping for the miracle that we might be able to outwork and outwit our genetics. Gain on!
Yea, I know it wasn’t brief, but I just wanted to rant and vent a bit about some of the things that annoy me most about thunders. If you’ve read this far. Thanks. Please feel free to comment. How do you feel? Agree. Disagree. Both.
